    Letter: Airplane noise will drive them away

    In response to your recent article regarding airplane traffic over Milton (“Shake, rattle, and call,” Oct. 3), you implied that no one was planning to move out of town due to the increase in airplane noise.

    We’ve lived here six years. In 2011, we put in a patio in our backyard. In the summer of 2012, we had dinner on the patio every night the weather allowed, enjoying the sounds of birds, crickets, and the neighborhood kids playing outside.

    This year, we ate dinner inside, in our dining room, with the windows closed and both an air conditioner and fan running to try to block out the airplane noise. Something changed this year with the flights into Logan: the airplanes come in very low, very loud, almost every minute.


    We love Milton and don’t want to leave, but we can’t live like prisoners in our own home.

    We are fixing up our house in preparation for putting it on the market in June 2014, as soon as our daughter graduates from Milton High School.
